Album Cover Artists for Hire

Album covers are the designs or illustrations of art that is placed on a music album. This art is also an essential part of music promotion and music distribution. The design which is used to present the music is another way of branding a company. It’s a reflection of a company as much as music.

Commissioned art, photographs or calligraphy, depending on the theme one can choose from these different types of album art. Sometimes there are songs from an album, photographs of the singer on the front cover of the album. The design is made attractive and eye-catching, as it has to capture the music in physical form.

A freelance album cover artist will help you grab attention of the audience; you can hire such artists from some of the best online project bidding websites.

What Does an Album Cover Artist Do?

The Album Cover Artists typically discuss their ideas and concepts with the band’s label or management. Once a basic direction is understood, they develop a series of rough ideas to present to the band. They amend the designs once the feedback is given. Artists are professionals who conceptualize and execute art for various platforms.

Album cover artists start by only using authorized images that are copyright protected. They make sure that the images they purchase are approved for commercial use. They work on art that matches the release or brand by using font, colours, and imagery that represents music and brand identity.

 As best album cover artists, they focus on the image size and format to ensure that the images are not blurry, pixelated, misaligned, or have other quality issues. They work on the release title and how the copy should match the release info and metadata exactly. Sometimes artists may use only an image without text.
